The automatic gizzard processor is designed for separating chicken gizzards from the intestines, cutting them open, cleaning their contents and peeling the horny skin off them.

Design and operation:

All elements are made entirely of high-quality, stainless, acid-resistant materials. Gizzards should be delivered to the processor with intestines (without hearts and liver) – e.g. from a sliding ramp or apron conveyor. A gizzard dropped through the inlet falls on rollers which position it and separate the intestines. Then, it is cut open by a rotating blade. Special guides mounted to the sliding strip part the gizzard halves and stabilise their position on the moving chain. Water spray from the collector removes and washes down the gastric contents. The chain, moving along the sliding strip, guides the gizzards to rollers which peel the horny skin, and after that, a special wheel knocks the gizzard down to the outlet, from where it gets to a container, table or conveyor.
